In the meantime, he faces fierce opposition from the cell phone industry for his research.

A number of attempts have been made to dissuade the efforts of Lai and Singh and to discredit their work. In fact, at one point, the director of a group created to manage $25 million in industry-donated research money tried to have then-UW President Richard McCormick fire them.

Lai asserts that most research on the potentially harmful effects of cell phones in the United States has ceased because of resistance from the cell phone industry. Since the federal government no longer funds such research, scientists are reliant on industry funding, which comes with restrictions that prevent them from asking the questions they seek to answer.

As for frequent users like Hong who are unwilling to part with their cell phones, Lai suggests the use of flip phones or headsets.

“The idea is to keep the source of radiation as far from your body as possible,” Lai advised. “Even one or two centimetres can make a significant difference in energy absorption.

In humans, DNA in brain cells would also sustain such damage since the radiation is emitted from the antenna of the phone and a majority of it is absorbed directly by the head.

In other studies done worldwide, frequent cell phone use has been linked to headaches, and even brain cancer. These studies also suggest a correlation between what side of the head a person holds a phone to and the amount of damage sustained by the DNA in the cells in the part of the brain corresponding to that side.

Despite the negative attention being given to cell phones in the media, the habits of many frequent cell phone users seem to remain the same.

Peter Hong, a UW sophomore psychology major, claims to make and receive at least 20 phone calls per day on his cell phone. Although he is aware of the potential harm he may be doing to himself, such studies have not deterred him from using his cell phone every day.

“Anything in this world is harmful to some extent,” said Hong. “[For example,] spicy foods are supposed to damage your intestines. It is also said that cell phones give you brain cancer. [But], those are two of the things I won’t give up.”

Lai admits it is too early to call the extent to which cell phones are capable of causing damage. More in-depth studies must be conducted with greater sample sizes over a longer period of time in order for any valid conclusion to be established. However, Lai has no doubt that the radiation emitted from the antennae of cell phones has at least some biological effect on frequent users.

With nearly a billion cell phone users worldwide, it is difficult to find anyone — on campus or elsewhere — without one. The prevalence of wireless users, however, shows that many are not heeding the increasing concern about the potentially harmful effects of cell phones including the damage cell phones may do to DNA in brain cells.

UW bioengineering professor Henry C. Lai has focused much of his research on trying to understand the way electromagnetic radiation emitted from these wireless devices affects the human body.

“What people don’t realize [when they use cell phones] is that they are irradiating themselves,” Lai said.

His studies have mainly consisted of exposing lab rats to microwave radiation similar to that emitted by cell phones, and then examining the rats’ brain cells to determine if DNA was damaged.

Any damage sustained by the DNA signifies a break in the body’s genetic code and the occurrence of a potential mutation, which could lead to tumors and cancer.

What Are The Initiators Of EHS Electrical Sensitivity and Hypersensitivity?

EHS Electrical Sensitivity, Hypersensitivity

Electrical hypersensitivity can have a variety of causes; computer monitors (VDUs), fluorescent lights, mobile and cordless phones are believed to be among the most common initiators of the problem; working in high magnetic fields, MRI scans, wireless computing systems, chemical overload, ‘closed head’ injury, allergy, low energy lamps, trauma, electric shock, metallic implants, even lightning strikes are other initiators. Many people experience an abrupt onset of symptoms following exposure to a novel EMF such as fields associated with a new computer, a new phone or new fluorescent lights.

Working in high electromagnetic fields can produce sensitivity. Drivers of electric trains are members of a group in which hypersensitivity can lead to very dangerous consequences. 10 – 25% of UK train drivers report ‘missing time’, time in which they were unaware of their surroundings. However brief this ‘absence’ may be, if it is at a critical place, e.g. coming up to a red light, it is possible that this could lead to fatal accidents.

British biophysicist Peter Alexander said, “Once the individual is sensitized to an agent the initial aggressor is immaterial. The biological reaction will be the same to all agents.” EHS commonly also develops with multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS). Computer monitors, and many other electronic items, give off quite toxic volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) when the cases and electronic components ‘burn in’ from new.

According to the UK’s Building Research Establishment, and a separate Australian study, new houses 1-2 years old can emit many times the level of potentially carcinogenic volatile organic compounds as houses built just 10 years ago. The sources include formaldehyde from treated wooden floors and furniture, toxic compounds from fresh paints and solvents, and hormone disrupting chemicals from carpets and vinyl flooring.

Tips for avoiding electrical hypersensitivity

Reduction of exposure in the house

There are two main sources of EMFs inside the home. The house wiring, and electrical appliances. Check your house wiring to ensure that field levels where you sleep and sit for extended periods, the two places where your biological systems are at their most vulnerable, are low.

Check the levels from all electrical appliance, especially near the bed and those which have a motor and heater. If you are unsure keep all electrical appliances at least a meter away from your pillow (including un-earthed bedside lights), clock radios, TVs, etc. Cordless phones and mobile phones should not be in the bedroom as they both give off high fields. Cordless phones emit microwave radiation all the time, mobile phones emit at maximum strength intermittently when on standby, and the re-charging unit gives off power-frequency fields as well.

Do not use an induction hob in the kitchen, and keep your distance from all electrical appliances when in use, especially if you are pregnant, are attempting to conceive (men and women) or if you have a compromised immune system due to ill-health or age.

A study by the Irish Doctors Environmental Association reported that half the people reporting ill-health effects as a result of living near to mobile phone base stations were unable to work due to the severity of the symptoms. They also led a very restricted social life, feeling like ‘prisoners’ in their own homes, which were not always comfortable places for them to be either.

Even cars have electrical and electronic equipment (power wiring, fan motors, computerised controls and dashboards) that can disturb electrically hypersensitive people, especially in the front seat.

Many trains, railway stations and planes now contain wireless computing systems, so that passengers can access the internet ‘on the move’. City centres are being covered by WiMAX systems, making access for EHS sufferers ever more difficult. Neighbours who are ‘ham’ radio operators can, even unwittingly, make an EHS neighbour’s life almost unbearable. A nearby lamp-post height mobile phone mast can make a house uninhabitable by an EHS person. They may not even be able to go down a road where one of these masts is situated. This makes living a ‘normal’ life almost impossible in severe cases of EHS.

It is generally accepted that probably between 3% and 7% of the population are EHS to some degree and maybe up to 35% show some mild indications of electro-stress.

People who have EHS develop different symptoms, for reasons that are poorly understood. Some people will react to power-frequency electric fields, some to magnetic fields and some to both. They may (or they may not) also react to radiofrequency fields such as those transmitted by the mobile phone networks, some reacting to the phones, some to the masts, and some to both. Some people will only react to radiofrequency fields and not to power-frequency fields. Some people will even react to sunlight, another part of the EMF spectrum.

Because of this the condition is not an easy one to diagnose. People with EHS often cannot go into hospital, even to visit. Hospitals are full of electrically powered equipment, some giving off very high EMFs, and hospitals have fluorescent lights, a common trigger for EHS and intolerable to most EHS people.

The incidence of EHS seems to be slightly higher in women than in men, and there appear to be significant day to day variations in their sensitivity. Many people with EHS have lower incomes and may be unemployed. These variations may be explained, at least in part, by difference in Health and Safety practices, especially with regard to chemical (and other) exposures in lower paid jobs, and the fact that EHS can lead to the inability to work in a ‘normal’ environment.

The social, work and financial lives of EHS sufferers are likely to be affected by the fact that fluorescent lights are used in public offices (making it hard to make claims for, or to draw, Social Security benefits), shops, libraries, theatres, cinemas, concert halls, restaurants, churches, trains, trams and buses.

Our Conclusion:

Current U.S. cell phone radiation standards, set by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and based largely on 1992 cell phone industry recommendations, are outdated and allow 20 times more radiation to penetrate the head than the rest of the body.

EWG urges the FCC to upgrade its standards to take account of the newest scientific evidence and also increasing cell phone use by children.

“The first cell phones were marketed to adults,” Naidenko said. “But today, children are just as likely to own a cell phone as a video game, baseball or bicycle.”

According to the Pew Internet and American Life Project, which tracks cell phone use among U.S. children between 12 and 17 years old, last year (2008) 71 percent of tweens and teens owned cell phones. More than half use the device daily.
EWG urges concerned consumers to take action and tell the federal government that cell phone makers should be required to disclose each phone’s radiation output on the label.

The report also offers safety tips for reducing cell phone radiation exposure. Among them:

• Use headsets and the speakerphone option if available.
• Text more, talk less.
• Stay off the phone when few bars indicate a weak signal.

EWG’s new interactive database, based on technical specifications of cell phones currently on the market and some popular older models, can be searched by model.
